that suggest that the video was the genesis of it. i know what was happening in cairo, they were concerned about that. but what is crystal clear is that immediately, they knew because they said they testified in the hearing we had before the election, that there they were witnessing this in real time and all of those indications were that this was a very orchestrated, very sophisticated attack on the compound that went on for hours and hours and hours. this was not a mob gone wild. there was not a video sparking this spontaneously. >> congressman, you've had your own hearings with darrell issa and there have been complaints from the democratic ranking members that they were not involved in either the witness lists or the briefings by the witnesses or questioning leading into it. what do you think of senator mccain and senator graham who are calling for a select committee which would be perhaps a joint committee, house and senate, bipartisan, to have one group like a watergate panel or an iran-contra panel to look into benghazi? >> the first part of your question i would beg to differ. the

nations secretary-general moon, in cairo, and egyptian president, he is spearheading these talks between hamas and israel. the israeli cabinet overnight had a four-hour meeting to discuss the egyptian proposal for a cease-fire. so they've decided for now to continue with the diplomatic efforts and hold off the ground operation. now, in terms of some of the demands of both israel and hamas, just to give you an idea what they want, israel wants hamas to stop firing rockets. so they don't want any hostile fire of any kind heading towards israeli city. on the other hand, hamas wants israel to stop target assassinations, and they want the siege lifted from gaza in place for years. >> obviously, lots of talk about the fighting and death toll continues to rise. another bloody night on both end, right, lama. >> reporter: absolutely. they're entering the seventh day, in the conflict, bombings have not stopped. the israeli air force, pounding strategic targets in gaza yesterday. the target was a hamas operative who was reportedly working out of a media building. they're also hitting more than a hu
